Just come to light have a number of short stories written by Alice Caroline Moon, published in NSW newspapers. Alice Moon lived on A'Beckett Road for some years in the 1880's building "The Steyne" (now Newstead). She was involved in a number of business ventures among them being a partner of Miss Harriet Elphinstone Dick in the Ladies' Gymnasium in Melbourne, and running the Central Restaurant for some years. On moving to Sydney she was a journalist at the Sydney Morning Herald, writing book reviews. She died in 1894 at age 38. One of her short stories, "Old Denny", was set in Upper Beaconsfield. Have a read of it.



Many family sections show only the children who were associated with Upper Beaconsfield.
